My penny mirror is up on my bedroom wall! Lately, I’ve been experimenting with the patina process of pennies and making functional art with them. 


retrostreet:
That is an interesting idea. I wonder how the zinc-cored pennies alter their appearances compared to the solid copper pennies of yore.

You know, I thought there would be major differences between current pennies and pre-1983 pennies when the copper content changed from 95% to 2.5%. HOWEVER, oddly enough I have not noticed any noticeable differences. I am still in early stages of experimentation. I need to have experiments with isolated variables so I can get some solid answers!!!
